Posted by Scott On May - 6 - 2010

The second issue, since re-branding from The Beaver to Canada’s History, is scheduled to hit newsstands May 24th.

This important, controversial, sensitive, and compelling investigation into the rarely talked-about subject matter, is courageous editorially, and deserved an equally courageous cover treatment.
